Bengt Tribukait (born 1964) is a free-lance organist, chamber musician and accompanist. His fascination with the music of Bach awoke early, and at the age of five he stated his desire to become an organist. During childhood Tribukait mostly played the piano though. When he was 14 he spent a year of instrumentational experimentation. Then he started his organ studies. In Tribukait’s mind the organ is the most complex and interesting instrument. Yet the harpsichord, piano and harmonium have their wonderful charms, and every day Tribukait practices on different instruments.
